In the second quarter, our spring seasonal business rebounded, and we saw strong performance in the core of the store and across all of our geographies, Frank Blake, Home Depot chairman and CEO, said in a statement Tuesday morning. Blake also thanked Home Depot employees for their service in the face of this increased demand. Looking ahead to the remainder of 2014, Home Depot reaffirmed that it expects full-year sales to grow 4.8% but also said that based on the second quarters strong results, it is raising its full-year profit forecast to $4.52 per share, a 20.2% increase over full-year 2013 earnings. The company had previously said that it expected $4.38 in earnings per share, or 16.5% growth over 2013. This earnings per share guidance includes the $3.5 billion in share buybacks that have occurred in the first half of 2014 as well as the additional $3.5 billion in shares Home Depot intends to repurchase during the back half of the year. http://www.forbes.com/sites/maggiemcgrath/2014/08/19/good-news-for-the-housing-market-home-depot-raises-full-year-forecast/
